Oath of Arbitrator

Arbitrators must execute and return the Oath of Arbitrator to FINRA Dispute Resolution before making any decision or attending a hearing. As part of the Oath, arbitrators are required to review three documents: the Arbitrator Disqualification Criteria; the Arbitrator Disclosure Checklist; and the Arbitrator Disclosure Report. In reviewing the Disclosure Checklist, be sure to read each question carefully—even if you believe your circumstances have not changed since you last served on a case—before signing and returning the Checklist as there are often changes to the questions and additional information may be requested.
